COURT OF APPEAL

INTERLOCUTORY APPEAL – REMOVAL OF LIQUIDATOR – WHETHER MASTER ERRED IN REFUSING APPLICATION TO GIVE DIRECTIONS TO A LIQUIDATOR/REMOVE A LIQUIDATOR – TEST FOR REMOVAL OF LIQUIDATOR – SECTION 10 OF ALIENS LAND HOLDING REGULATION ACT

The Appellant had given a power of attorney to the Respondent, Corrine Clara, to manage all of her affairs in Grenada. Prior to that, the Appellant had added the Respondent as a signatory to her bank account in Grenada. The power of attorney in favour of the Respondent was revoked by the Appellant and Nancy McKenzie Greene, the Appellant’s step-daughter, was appointed by the Appellant as her attorney (the “Attorney”). The Attorney subsequently instituted proceedings against the Respondent in the name of the Appellant seeking, among other relief, an Order requiring the Respondent to account for sums of money withdrawn from the account.

This Appeal concerned, inter alia, the refusal by the Court of first instance to permit the Appellant to issue a witness summons under Part 33 of the English Civil Procedure Rules, 2000 (“CPR 2000”). It should also be noted that the proceedings in the Court below were reaching the pre-trial review stage although no date for trial had been fixed.
